Sun by Steele Hill
Book DescriptionAfter all these years, we think we know the Sun. It is familiar and ever-present, central to human culture. It's so familiar that most of us hardly look at it and so brilliant that we cannot. All of us know what the Sun looks like...or do we? The Sun rules the weather, feeds the plants, warms the Earth. Wars have been started and stopped because of events on the Sun; emperors and kings have been crowned and crushed in its light. As far back as you can go in history, the Sun sits at the centre of the human story. Food, rhythm, energy, light. These practical gifts have sometimes morphed into supernatural ones, as the cycles in the skies have provided hints and hopes of order and divinity in the universe. The Sun has been the centre around which our life on Earth revolves. "The Sun" presents the Sun in a whole new light. The story of our Sun is told not just by the daylight, but by the night sky; not just by its full brilliance but also its reflected, distorted, and bent light; and not just from Earth, but from the edge of the solar system.
